Vital that we left with something says boss

Mick McCarthy was happy enough to take the point after a goalless draw at Huddersfield. 

The home side had the better chances and Stephen Henderson was the far busier ‘keeper but the point keeps Blues above the Terries in the table and four points clear of the drop zone. 

“It was a lousy pitch that doesn’t help a team play good football and it wasn’t a good game but I’ll take the point,” said the Town boss. 

“I would have taken it before I got here. It was two teams who are struggling at the wrong end of the table and it was never likely to be a free-flowing game when you take that into consideration and the state of the pitch. 

“They had the better chances, we didn’t play that well but we hung on in there and coming away from home, it was a good point. 

“It wasn’t a great game for the fans to watch. In fact it was a pretty dire game and I apologise to the fans for that but I’ve explained the reasons why that could happen and it’s no good playing good football, creating chances and leaving with nothing as we did at Bristol City. It’s about getting enough points to stay in this league.”
